I was in India working on the documentary Bulbul: Song of the Nightingale, a film that seeks to raise awareness of the Banchara community and their struggle with the longstanding tradition of caste-based prostitution where girls as young as 10-years-old are forced into the sex trade. These photographs do not reflect the aforementioned. They were taken on early morning walks in Udaipur, as well as in Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Delhi, and the Thar Desert.
